    Hey guys, I've posted a thread about me wanting to create a blog about something which I am very passionate about, the subject is gaming. To be specific MMO's (Massively Multiplayer Online Games). I've just created the site and written an introduction, and was wondering if you guys have any tips for me to improve my site. Please feedback me on my first introduction article that I wrote myself :D.

    I'm sure you guys know the end to that, BHW has some strict moderation on posts! Dammit!

    Thanks for your help,
    have a good day!

    I'm using the greenery theme which is one of the free ones! I just customized it and added some pictures, at first I thought it would be really difficult, but its actually not that hard :p

    Thanks for your help,

    If you want to do this well you should change theme, and if you want to make some money, you definitely need to switch to self-hosted wordpress.

    Put here screenshot of your dashboard, I will tell you how you can install plugins. (Plugins section should be under Appearance )

    Dude I don't know why I don't like the Green color. :(
    The theme is OK but the color combination is not OK. and also remember that gaming topic is very competitive.
    thanks

    i think you have to switch your domain into paid ones and try to buy cheap hosting so you can access plugins and change theme whatever you want.

    ThemeForest is also a great place to look for wordpress themes. Good luck man!
